Yorkshire Engagement Photography | Destination Wedding Photographers Yorkshire
Each year our work takes us to incredible new locations and we’re finding ourselves travelling more and shooting further afield than we ever expected.
No matter how far we go it’s hard to top the landscapes we have right on our doorstep and sometimes it takes a great day out with an amazing couple to remind us of that.
When we met Helen and Adam at the start of the walk to Malham Cove, we quickly found ourselves deep in conversation. Still on a high from our America trip earlier in the year we talked a lot about travel, places we had all enjoyed visiting and places we still wanted to go to. It’s a fair walk to the top of the Cove and it was a while before we even started taking photos. For us, the time not spent shooting is the most valuable of all, especially when it’s a couple like Helen and Adam with whom an hour feels like 5 minutes.
Their shoot is the perfect example of why we think it’s so important to get to know the people we are photographing. We loved seeing them relax in front of the cameras, allowing us to get close enough to capture the kind of moments that we love to shoot. I think if you’d have asked them before the shoot if they would have felt comfortable being that intimate, on a cliff 300 feet high and with a camera just a few feet away they would definitely have said no.
When we looked back over the images on the back of our cameras it really did remind us just how incredible the Yorkshire scenery is, but as we drove away from Malham we weren’t talking about how awesome the landscape was. We could have been anywhere and we would have still loved the shoot and our time spent getting to know Helen and Adam.
